Trump's Trade Adviser Apologizes for 'Inappropriate' Trudeau Comments

Source: Bloomberg

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro apologized for suggesting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau deserved a “special place in hell” for a perceived breach in protocol against U.S. President Donald Trump.

“My job was to send a signal of strength,” he said at a conference in Washington on Tuesday. “The problem was that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate.”

“I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words.”

But didn't Trump just say Canada will pay?

1. There was an article yesterday with headline reading Trump Admin in Damage control mode--

or something like that. Seems it was right.

16. The filthy fascist bastard did his hatchet job. Their primary tactic is character assassination.

I really wish that one fine day that someone has the guts to wipe up the street with this piece of crap that washed up from the sewer into the White House. He insults people without any restraint because he thinks that his wealth gives him the right to do so. Look at all the mealy-mouthed clowns that ran against him. He insulted everyone of them and they slinked away with their tails between their legs like pathetic dogs. His treatment of women is atrocious and not one male with any backbone came to their protection.

2. "My job was to send a signal of strength," There we go ...

The little man behind the curtain told him to say boo.

It makes the Trump administration look even more pathetic than i thought they were.

19. I had said I thought the whole performance by Kudlow and Navaro

 

had been planned, hatched out in advance. Glad to see confirmation that my BS detector is revved up and throttling right along.

Sad to see those guys buy into the myth that ugly bullying and taunts show strength.

4. Navarro must be terrified

Trump now worships a dictator who had his own family executed. So an advisor is probably worth less than they were.

8. It was the sentiment, not the language that was inappropriate

He actually sounds like he is apologizing for saying "hell". In fact, the problem was his characterization of what Trudeau said, his over the top calling that out and a comment that suggested that other leaders should cow tow to the great Donald Trump.

This actually makes it worse.

9. That was NOT an apology. He apologized for the language not the message.

The message came through loud and proud.

12. He didn't "suggest" it, he flat-out said it.

Will the Press please stop crawling to two-bit political hacks?

I'm sorry, I meant to say, "I sincerely disagree with your position."
